Or, as ABC News put it with their own spin, “rescinded Obama-era guidance directing schools to allow transgender students to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity” (ABC News). With a little more spin, CNN insists “The Trump administration on Wednesday night withdrew Obama-era protections for transgender students” (CNN). From another story: It will now be up to states and school districts to interpret whether federal sex discrimination law applies to gender identity (CBS News).

This past Saturday, Norma McCorvey passed away at the age of 69 in Texas. She was better known by her pseudonym, Jane Roe. McCorvey was the lead plaintiff in the infamous Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion in the United States.
The reality is that pro-abortion forces were shopping for a plaintiff and if it wasn’t Norma McCorvey, it would have been someone else. She was simply a cog in the abortion machine.
In the 1990s, McCorvey became a Christian and reversed her position on abortion. In very telling words, she would later say that her conscience was turned largely by her imagination. She was thinking of the laughter of all of those babies, including the infants who were never born.
Since the ruling in 1973, some 50 million unborn babies have been killed. Looking back over time, we can see that 1973 and the Roe v. Wade decision were simply the beginning of the battle for the sanctity and dignity of human life that continues even today.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/309040915″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

Lord Kevin Shinkwin of the British Parliament recently shed light on the horrifying practice in Great Britain of allowing an abortion up until moments before birth if the baby is found to have a disability.
Lord Shinkwin himself has a disability and boldly asserted that “people with congenital disabilities are facing extinction.”
Indeed, The Federalist reports that “in 2015, an estimated 3,213 U.K. babies were aborted because they were diagnosed with a disability in utero—a 68 percent increase in 10 years.”
As Lord Shinkwin rightly warns, we’re looking at that weeding of the human garden beginning with those who are least capable of defending themselves, including the disabled. And once again, we should recognize this is a moral logic that isn’t new to the 21st century.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/308870204″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /] Read More »
